Munich/Minneapolis, Jul 25, 2017

Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America, a member of the Allianz Group, and Minnesota United FC today announced a multi-year naming rights sponsorship agreement for the team’s new soccer stadium in St. Paul, Minn., which will be known as Allianz Field.

The new stadium, which is being privately paid for by a partnership composed of Minnesota-based families and business leaders, is the first stadium in Minnesota without a direct public subsidy.

“We are very happy to welcome Allianz Field to our global family of stadiums,” said Jean-Marc Pailhol, Head of Group Market Management and Distribution at Allianz SE. “Allianz Life is the leading provider of retirement and protection solutions in the U.S. and this stadium partnership, our first in North America, provides us with a great opportunity to share our passion for soccer and reinforce our commitment to the community.”

Scheduled to complete construction in time for the start of the 2019 Major League Soccer (MLS) season, Allianz Field joins seven other Allianz-sponsored stadiums located in some of the most dynamic cities around the world.

As the newest landmark in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Allianz Field will be among the most state-of-the-art and unique stadiums in the MLS and a place where members of the Twin Cities community can gather for a variety of events, ranging from MLS and global exhibition matches to youth soccer and community celebrations.

The stadium will have a translucent PTFE laminate mesh skin and features LED lighting technology similar to Allianz Arena in Munich, which allows the stadium to change colors in response to different events and activities. The stadium will feature modern amenities and advanced technology, and is specifically designed to positively address sustainability while minimizing environmental impact and energy usage.
